    House honors Philippine beauties

     
    MEMBERS of the House of Representatives led by Speaker Feliciano Belmonte, Jr. on Wednesday paid tribute to three Filipina beauty queens by presenting to the titlists the approved resolutions commending them for their victory.
    The House gave recognition to 2013 Miss International Bea Rose Santiago, Miss Supranational Mutya Johanna Fontiveros Datul and Miss Universe third runner-up Ariella Arida for giving the country pride, honor and inspiration.
    The tribute was done on the basis of three resolutions approved by the House earlier on Tuesday, namely: House Resolution 353 authored by Rep. Eric Olivarez (1st District, Parañaque City) congratulating and commending Datul for winning the 2013 Miss Supranational pageant held on Sept. 6, 2013; HR 636 filed by Rep. Angelina Tan (4th District, Quezon) congratulating and commending Santiago for winning the Miss International 2013 held on Dec. 17, 2013; and HR 472 filed by Rep. Sol Aragones (3rd District, Laguna) congratulating and commending Arida for winning third runner-up in the 2013 Miss Universe pageant held on Nov. 12, 2013.
    The handing of the resolutions to the beauty pageant winners was done during the session presided by the Speaker himself.
    The Speaker said the beauty titlists' victory is indeed welcome news to the country, especially in this time of great calamities that have affected so many Filipinos.
    "We are honored to have you here at the House of Representatives. Congratulations and thank you very much to you for putting forward the best place of the country. Without question, Filipinos have taken pride in what you have accomplished," said the Speaker.
    Santiago thanked everyone for the warm welcome and recognition accorded to them by House members. She attributed their victory to hard work and the strong resolve to give pride and honor to the country.
    "We really gave our best for our country, and we're happy that we've made every one proud," said Santiago.
